Elk Grove is looking toward the future. The city just announced plans for a $35 million skilled nursing and urgent care facility to keep up with the region’s health care demands.
New Faze Skilled Nursing, a 76,000-square-foot center, will help fill a void within the Elk Grove community for additional health resources and bed space. It’ll house 120 patient beds, an urgent care clinic and a rehabilitation program.
The new building represents optimism in the economy and readiness for future medical challenges, which we are reminded about daily with the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.
The company behind the project says Elk Grove was selected due to its apparent shortage of skilled nursing beds, especially for elderly residents. The hope is to meet the community’s long-term medical needs.
In late April, the city’s planning commission gave the green light for the project, the final approval required to proceed.
Project leaders believe construction will begin as soon as this year, possibly by summertime once financing details are solidified. It may open early 2023.
New Faze Skilled Nursing will be located in the southern part of Elk Gove near Whitelock Parkway in the Laguna Ridge area.
